We visited the Crayola Experience yesterday, it was sooooo fun. I was uncertain after reading all the reviews on here if the nearly 2 hour drive would be worth it, but i had a Living Social deal about to expire, so off we went. Parking is super easy and inexpensive so don't stress about the car. We arrived at just after 10am, there was already a line!! You'll get tokens to collect pens, crayons and modeling clay as you go, you'll also be collecting crayons separate to the tokens. My 4 year old was super excited to get started. If you have a child who loves to sit down and do "art projects" you cannot go wrong with this, its project after project after project, with some interactive dashing about in between. We left at 4pm to beat the traffic, we could easily have stayed until closing at 5pm. This is definitely an all day attraction, there is so much to do (baffled by MrTG's review who thought it was lacking for things for kids to do, maybe he had very young children) don't think you'll be all done in 2 hours, my daughter wanted to go back to some things and do them again they were so fun. This might be a different experience taking along a younger sibling, everything is geared towards i would say 4 to 8 year olds, so if you have a baby in tow, or even a 2 year old, be prepared! Other notes, the staff were friendly and helpful, restrooms on each floor which were clean and well maintained, the layout was super easy, the whole place was bright and cheerful, i really have no complaints. Pack a lunch or grab lunch from the connected MacDonalds. You will leave with art projects galore, crayons & pens and a really happy child, unless they are sad because they don't want to leave yet!!! I like this better than the Zoo, the Franklin Institute and the Discovery Museum for a day out with my 4 year old, we will go again.
